According to the 7/3/00 Plastic News, Sen. Wes Chesbro effectively conceded defeat in his
efforts in SB 1110 to expand California's 25% recycled content law for plastic bottle.

food and cosmetic containers. Because of California's size, its standards are effectively
a national standard for national brands' packages.
